Washington: A new headset that beams movies, video games or even video calls directly into your eyeballs - even in 3D - has been developed.

The headset due to launch this year uses two million microscopic mirrors to emulate the way the eye processes real-world images.

The Glyph headset, developed by Michigan-based Avegant, creates visuals that just need your retinas and brain instead of a screen, CNN reported.

The technology centres around a set of two million microscopic mirrors - a million per eye - that reflect visuals, including 3-D, into the user's eye.

Users can play the video content on their mobile or entertainment device and watch it on the Glyph instead of their device's screen.

Edward Tang, Avegant's CEO said that Glyph has a battery life of about three hours. The device looks like a pair of headphones sitting on the user's head when not in use, the report said.

It also doubles as a pair of high-end headphones with noise cancelling, Avegant said. Users flips down the band over their head, making it an eyepiece to add visuals.
